Here we are, one year later, in beautiful downtown St. Pete, Florida. Today’s weather was so perfect, I’d bet everyone up north that’s nearly frozen to death would sell their soul for. Weather so delightfully wonderful that it’s exactly the kind of universal THANK YOU to Olga Bof, founder of Keep St. Petersburg Local that was appropriate. The kind of deserved THANK YOU to Olga and her amazing Team KSPL, for unifying all things local, again today, February 7, 2015 with Localtopia 2.0.
I Love Downtown Saint Pete, St. Pete, DTSP.
I really really love living, working and playing here in downtown St. Pete, Florida. Why? Is it because I was born and raised here? Is it because I’ve traveled to over 35 countries on 5 continents and have a global perspective as to what truly makes up a great city? What makes up a wonderful living experience? Certainly some of both.
(NOTE = Since first publishing this blog, we’ve updated our name from I Love DTSP to Downtownstpete.com)

She’s baaaack! Stella Myers, founder of Stellie Bellies Kiddie and Maternity Resale Boutique, is back in the stores. Ok, okay, truthfully she was never really gone; she has been in the background focusing her time on the big picture of expanding her business, by branching out into franchise locations. She, along her husband and partner Mike Myers, added their first franchise this February in Trinity, FL to the family of stores in St Petersburg and Palm Harbor. And now, just like the families her stores serve, she is delighted to walk through the front doors again to share time with store employees and customers.
Good day everyone! After a long beautiful and engaging stroll while eating, tasting, shopping and enjoying the best farmer’s market in the entire Southeastern USA, SATURDAY MORNING MARKET, we made our way over to LOCALTOPIA. Localtopia?? Well my good friend and fellow Entrepreneur Olga Bof (and her amazing crew), of Keep Saint Petersburg Local organized an all day saturday extravaganza at our lovely downtown Williams Park yesterday,
